G-MM™: Meditation Moment - 07.04.12
‘What do you want with us, Son of God?’
The people of Jesus’ time had an overwhelming belief in evil spirits.
The air was so full of these spirits, that it was said that it was not even possible to insert the point of a needle into the air without coming against one.
In our world there is much evidence of evil in continual war, injustice, hunger and oppression.
As Jesus was able to cast out demons in his own world, we believe he can and will cast out evil from our own world.
Let us pray constantly for this and give our energies to this task.
Jesus is the one who will liberate those whose lives are dominated and determined by the forces of evil.
Lord, I believe that your Good News to our world is of peace, justice, freedom and dignity.
I pray that these may be realised more and more.
